because you are covering the campaign and when there is a change of administration, there are always more invitations to speak. people feel somehow you must know something. nothing is worse for a speaker on politics like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? >> massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longe

as being good guy, but what the administration is asking us to do is not just trust obama in this particular conflict to make good decisions. but essentially to trust, you know, all the presidents that come after him, all the occupants off the oval office t make similar good decisions. we've send who has occupied the chair. i'm not sure i feel comfortable with that. and frankly, if even jed has misgivings about this mem hoe, t memo, the rest of us should freak out. >> at the end of of the day, it's not the president, its eye the intel and military, is it not? if you're in war time, aren't those the key players? >> and they should be. the problem with the mem hoe is it lets any senior informed official to make that kind of decision. i have no problem delegating that decision to a warrior, a lieutenant colonel who is on the front line and knows what's going on, but you want to hand the power of life and death to january element napolitano or eric holder? i don't think so. again, i think katherine is right to an extent, we have to have somebody who is a grown up handling thes
